AUTUMN 2015

issue 31

We are pleased to announce that for the first time ever, EVA will be hosting an After Party at the Dubai Air Show, at the Pulse Dubai on the evening of Wednesday 11th November. This is thanks to major sponsorship from Rani Awad, CEO of Atlantic FuelEx, who features on our cover this issue, and Satcom Direct, with support from Tom Tanury, Chairman of Tanury Industries. 

This is our biggest ever issue, with far too many CEO profiles for me to mention them one by one. Our high net worth individual profile this time round is Herbert Kohler, Executive Chairman of Kohler Co, one of the oldest and largest privately-held companies in America. Kohler is an absolutely inspirational entrepreneur and I’d urge everyone to take the time to read Margie Goldsmith’s scintillating article.
